Are you open in winter? What are the opening times please?
Jan. 26, 2013 by Gemma
We don’t have opening hours per se, rather:


The garden is normally open from morning to evening, seven days a week
although there may be times that we need to close the garden during
these hours.


Although the garden is open during daylight hours normally – if its locked, then ITALO the shop should have keys.

It is manned by volunteers, so not always according to a strict time table.
Could you tell us where we can find what are the names of the plants that grow in bonnington square and most importantly from which country are they coming from?

Hi, please could you tell me if it’s possible to use the garden for a wedding “blessing” with a group of family and friends. Also for other similar group events? If you cannot advise – please could you let me know who I can ask? Many thanks.

In principal we would be delighted to hire the space to you.
You may be interested to organise the catering via the fabulous http://italodeli.co.uk/ .


The garden would be looking for a generous donation to close the garden for this event; we rely soley on donations to run this garden, and the overheads are met through these funds. No-one who volunteers to help gets paid – so 100% of all money raised goes to securing the future of this fabulous community space.

Please contact us directly to introduce for further information.

Is there a an online notice board for finding rooms or flats for rent in the square?
